How to Make Homemade Granola

Making homemade granola is SO easy and very quick. This healthy toasted granola recipe takes no longer then 5 minutes to throw together and 25-30 minutes in the oven. Make homemade granola in 3 simple steps:

  1. Mix together all of the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Whisk together the pure maple syrup, almond butter and extra virgin olive oil in a seperate bowl.
  3. Mix the maple mixture through the dry ingredients until evenly coated, spread out evenly across the base of a baking dish and place into the oven to bake for 25-30 minutes.

See, easy! Make sure to remove the granola from the oven half way through, toss with a spoon and then return to the oven to finish baking to create an even toast.

Why Make Your Own Toasted Granola?

Making your own granola is quick, easy and leaves the kitchen smelling hella good! It also means that you know exactly what is going into your food, giving you control over the type of sweetener used.

Feel free to use this recipe as a base and switch out ingredients for other preferred ingredients if desired. Some ideas are:

  • add dried blueberries or chopped dried dates
  • make nut free by using tahini instead of almond butter and sunflower seeds instead of cashews
  • swap out any of the seeds for other seeds you may have at home. Some examples are using pepitas, linseeds or sesame seeds.
  • use honey or brown rice malt syrup instead of maple syrup

Serving Suggestions

My favourite way to serve granola is with yoghurt and berries, but here are some other suggestions for you:

  • use this granola to top porridge or overnight oats for some crunch factor.
  • straight up – just add milk!
  • use it to top your next smoothie or smoothie bowl
